qaeda is far from dead andloe benghazi terrorist attacks. whether it amounts to a whitewash. joining us now is judh miller, former u.s. amassador to the united nations, john bolton. thank you both for being here. i would like to start with a couple of the finding from the executive summary of this report. these two findings occur ith one paragraph. first, embassy tripoli did not demonstrate strongand sustained advocacy with washington for increased security for special mission in benghazi. that means the onsulate. lou: here's the other binding after one paragraph. in the days and months and weeks leading up to it, wer inadequate. despite repeated requests and special mission in benghazi and embassy tripoli for additional staffing. judith miller, reconcile what wadirectly contradictory findings within a ragraph of one another. >> secretary of state clinton is going to have to answer that question. i think this is an incredibly damning report about the administration. the behavior and security posture in benghazi. questions are going to be asked and they will have to be entered. lou: w
